10th Textile Forum anniversary huge successThursday, 25 October 2012
FashionUnited previously brought you a main story on the
successful Textile Forum, this year in its 10th anniversary year.
The event, just gone, was as expected a resounding success with the highest percentage of first-time visitors since the event was launched in 2002.
Among the diverse designers and brands that attended were Christopher Kane, Umbro, Holland and Holland, ASOS, Jenny Packham, Lyle & Scott, Pearce Fionda and Twenty8Twelve.
"The exhibition was busy from the moment that we opened the doors and at times people were queuing to get in," says Linda Laderman, co-founder and organiser. "This augurs well for our next decade."
Particularly impressed with the event was Andrew Fionda of Pearce Fionda. "We thought the show was brilliant. We were looking for fabric for a small couture collection we are introducing and we saw some of the world's top fabrics at Textile Forum. We normally go to Premiere Vision but decided we wanted to try and do everything from London - and we did."
